Army probing alleged assault of cadet officer by instructors

The Guyana Defence Force (GDF) has launched an investigation into the alleged assault of an Officer Cadet by training instructors at the Colonel John Clarke Military School in Tacama.

The incident allegedly occurred during a training exercise at the school, some time between Wednesday and Thursday, a press release from the army said.

Following the report, the Officer Cadet was initially taken to the Base Ayanganna Medical Centre before being taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH), where he was seen by a specialist. Currently, the man is at Ayanganna under the care of the Force Medical Officer.

According to the GDF, a team of investigators has been dispatched to the military school while a Board of Inquiry has been ordered to convene immediately “to unearth all issues relating to this incident.”

Meanwhile, Chief of Staff Mark Phillips reiterated “the force does not condone violence in any form against its ranks,” the release concluded.
